"A Galaxy Far Far Away" shows the religious fervor surrounding the opening- of all things- Star Wars - Episode I, The Phantom Menace (Widescreen Edition). Star Wars fans had eagerly awaited--patiently biding their time for nearly 2 decades- for the latest George Lucas masterpiece. The documentary has high profile fans of Star Wars such as Joe Pesci and Meat Loaf--but most of the documentary is about ordinary people who find the series meaningful.

There's a Boba Fett rapper, a gay dancing Storm Trooper, a really disturbing-looking middle-aged man who lounges around in superhero outfits, even an opera singer who goes into lyrical ecstasy as she awaits Jar Jar Binks. The fans who put great effort into their costumes, in buying the toys (the fight over toys is juxtaposed with fights over food in Kosovo) There's a pair of teenaged boys who camp outside a movie theater for FORTY TWO DAYS. They keep vigil, showering/bathing in a nearby public restroom--we never really get into the details of their survival. But it's in front of Graumann's Chinese Theater instead of the Alaskan wilderness in Into the Wild. They have a terrible sense of futility. Even seeing the movie is a letdown. There's a father who's named his son Anakin (but isn't Anakin the villain? The young Darth Vader? Nevermind) "Galaxy Far Far Away" even manages to bring in some Trekkies dressed as Klingons. Their devotion to the series is a form of religion. Some men come to terms with their absent fathers through the series;others find harmony through the Force.

May the Force be with you!

"A Galaxy Far Far Away" is a documentary about the fan craze surrounding the motion picture "Star Wars." In 1999, as the country eagerly anticipated the release of "Episode I: The Phantom Menace," director Tariq Jalil decided to explore why "Star Wars" strikes such a mysterious and powerful chord across all races, genders, and generations. The DVD features interviews with hundreds of fans, movie executives, and high-profile celebrities. Jalil brings his camera to "Star Wars" conventions, nationwide premieres, the homes of dedicated collectors who show off their treasures, and on the lines to interview those who spent 42 days just to be among the first to see "The Phantom Menace." Interviews and archival footage include Samuel L. Jackson, Joe Pesci, Roger Corman, Meat Loaf, Andy Garcia, Jimmy Kimmel, and "Star Wars" alumni David Prowse (Darth Vader), Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), Kenny Baker (R2-D2), and Anthony Daniels (C3-PO). Most amazing is the tunnel-visioned devotion of so many folks from average walks of life to the sci-fi franchise.

A GALAXY FAR FAR AWAY is a documentary about the STAR WARS phenomenon / fan base, ranging from the fanatical (waiting in line for 42 days to see PHANTOM MENACE) to the completely bonkers (STAR WARS as life / philosophy / religion). While it contains several interviews w/ fans at various conventions, along w/ comments by Roger Corman and a therapist, it also has quite a few celebrity cameos by the likes of Meat Loaf, Andy Garcia, Robert Logia, and Joe Pesci. AGFFA examines not only the fans, but also the mythology, merchandise, and mania of the STAR WARS sub-culture. My favorite part is the confrontation between Jimmy Kimmel, Adam Corolla, and the fans. Kimmel and Corolla cut in front of the line, causing a lot of anger! Also, the Trekkies protest is hilarious! Worth checking out...

Like any documentary, it has it's ups and downs. But this documentary is an amusing look inside of a fandom that is full of overly obsessive fanboys and girls. And I say this with all the love in the world, seeing as I am one of those fangirls.
